Residence in Forest-side Japan for Artist
These are the reviews from Artists who experienced our Land through Artist in residence program.
Special Stay in Historical Japanese site
Warm greetings from Forest-side Japan. We offer Artists the historical residence surrounded by beautiful nature.
Our place is located at a small village and the residence we offer you is the part of formor Mayor's house. If you are looking for real history of Japan, our land shall be one of the wonderful places for you to stay at.
We have spent 5 years to self-renovate the place, including the forest, to revive "Human Life" where we can feel nature and culture right next to us.
The place is designed to enjoy creative activities, so come & join us to relax & to create!
Together with 100 years old residence, we own a mountain and gardens where you can fully enjoy Japansese nature.
Any materials in our Mountain is available for you to use for creations. Mountain-garden will be available shortly!
There will be an ancient warehouse, renovated as a gallery space, available for you to have an exhibition. Since this is not a city-side, Online-exhibition is one of the possibilities to show your works to everyone!
Dinning room is also a renovated-warehouse, where you can gather with other participants.
Room to sleep & to create!
Renovated room, with 2 single beds and a desk, will be your space to stay. You can enjoy creations and have a good night rest here.
Just like a share house, this is a room for Two persons, so you may have a roommate if another guest is staying.
While our summer school is Off-season, you will have a chance to stay in warehouse as well!
Gardens & Potage
We take care gardens & potage, where we grow flowers, herbs, fruits, and vegetables. Soils are handmade and little bees are our garden partners. If you are interested in growing plants, let's grow them together!
Together with Potage-garden where you can pick vegetables & herbs, we have out-side kitchen and patio to enjoy a daily life. If you gather some fire-woods from the mountain, you can have fun with wild cooking!
During summer time, summer school for University students will be held at this land, which provides you a chance to have cultural exchange!
Also, exciting material workshops will take place for our Forest-side club, which you can join with material fee only during your stay!
